'She’s No Angel' | Kate Moss
Photographer Steven Klein and fashion director Edward Enninful team up for W Magazine March 2012. Kate Moss wearing Cornelia James, goes from angelic in white to devious in black for this cover. The supermodel has graced W’s covers more than any other person in its 40-year history, and there’s little sign of her reign coming to an end. Icy in white, this supposed angel rests peacefully in a dark, dark room. Storms of chaos swirl around in her head as she dreams. For her, these are no nightmare. Remember, even Lucifer was once an angel...
Stranger Than Paradise | Tilda Swinton
Tilda Swinton takes an exotic excursion in ‘Stranger than Paradise’ wearing our 'Harriet' by Tim Walker for W Magazine May 2013. Cornelia James travels to Xilitla, Mexico where Tim Walker and his muse Tilda Swinton descend on Las Pozas, a garden in a subtropical rainforest created by the late poet Edward James. As he gazed into the heart of Las Pozas he wrote 'I have seen such beauty as one man has seldom seen'. Hoping to embrace that liberated realm of the imagination and unconscious so familiar to James, the photographer Tim Walker and the actress Tilda Swinton created a series of phantasmagorias inspired by artists Salvador Dalí, Giorgio de Chirico, Remedios Varo, Leonora Carrington, and other James muses and collaborators. And like that, we are transported to a world where the wonder of nature meets the surrealistic space of virtual visionaries. A creative collaboration of the highest order, this stunning series is a salute to the sanctity of this sacred land. Full article and photoshoot here.
Joan Collins | W Magazine
Joan Collins in our 'Arabella' and 'Hermione' gloves for W Magazine, December 2018. Styled by Simon Robins and photographed by Angelo Pennetta. In 1955, when a shy 22-year-old actress named Joan Collins arrived in Hollywood from London to begin her contract with 20th Century Fox, she had some pressing concerns. One was how to avoid appearing star-struck during lunch at the studio commissary, where, on her first day, she spotted Lana Turner, Richard Burton, Susan Hayward, and Robert Wagner. Collins also worried about how she would fare after her ingenue years were over: Would she become a respected leading lady like her idols Vivien Leigh and Margaret Leighton? Or would she end up alone in an old-actors’ home, poring over yellowed clippings about movies that nobody remembered, if they’d seen them in the first place?Today it’s clear that her concerns have eased.
